Science Bar – open 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Art Studio – open 11:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Do you love dogs? Do you have a stuffed animal dog at home? If you answered yes to both questions…then come on down to the art studio and make something for your “furry friend.” In honor of “National Dog Day”, guests will be using their imagination to make a toy or another “accessory” for their stuffed animal dog. 

Build It Lab – open 11:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Make your own wooden holder for your dog’s leash and you can even put your pooches name on it.
